Understanding Society – The psychodynamic impact and implications of COVID 19 on Black and Minority Ethnic people


Listening to the experiences of black and minority-ethnic people — COVID 19 and racism are real

Speakers: Augustine Sagoe and Leslie Brissett
Date: 17th June 2020, 5.30pm-7.30pm BST
Venue: Online via Zoom

This event is now fully booked

The spotlight has been on racism recently. The death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police is sparking widespread #BlackLivesMatter protests. In the UK, Public Health England’s recent report on Covid-19 shows a disproportionately large number of deaths and hospital admissions for people from black and minority-ethnic communities.

This event will provide an opportunity to hear the experiences of black and minority-ethnic people. It will consist of:

  • Introduction
  • Sharing of experiences
  • Discussion in small groups
  • Feedback
  • Hypothesis formation
  • Where do we go from here?

Augustine Sagoe is a Director / Trustee of OPUS, Director GRConsultancy and Former Executive Director of Nursing, Governance and Social care in the NHS

Leslie Brissett is Director of the Group Relations Programme, Principal Researcher/Consultant and Company Secretary at The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations

We will send a link to all registered participants in advance of the event.  A donation of between £5–£9 is requested and all proceeds will go towards the valuable work of OPUS.
